I like a casual yet focused teaching approach. My goal is to rephrase problems or teach things in a way that will help the student learn in a way that makes sense to them (visuals, using examples of what is already familiar to the student, written, spoken, etc). One teaching approach does not fit every student. Hearing or looking at the problem/topic in different ways and finding out how the student learns best is key to helping people successfully learn topics. I also like to share organization strategies to help people feel less stressed about upcoming tests or assignments.
I love to learn and have a strong background in academia. I enjoy instilling a passion for learning in others or at the very least helping them feel more prepared and less anxious and stressed around learning!
I finished my Ph.D. in Environment and Natural Resources (concentration in Wildlife Science) and also graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Equine Science and B.S. in Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology with a minor in Business Administration. I have taught and mentored college students, tutored high school students, tutored peers throughout high school and college, and also taught individuals with disabilities.
If I have to travel more than 20 minutes, a $10 fee will be charged. However, this can be negotiable if the session is longer than 1 hour!
